Change is the only Constant

change

Try as we will nothing ever stays the same. Each moment that passes is a new one. And yet so often we find ourselves avoiding, ignoring and even fighting changes that come into our lives.

Change is more acceptable perhaps if we have control over it. However when we do not have control, we are sometimes overpowered with fear and insecurity. Our defense mechanisms become alert and we prepare for battle.

Understanding that change is the only constant, will set us free. Choose to welcome change as a blessing in disguise, and we may just start to experience newness in our lives. It is a wonderful gift the universe offers us – to learn and grow constantly.

What will I choose to be today? – a stagnant pool of water – standing still, or a flowing river always ready to go with the flow.

 

Om Shanti

Seed of Thought

2015-04-20_0807_001

We often describe thoughts as seeds because from one thought many more thoughts are generated. These thoughts go on to determine our words and actions.

If we step back and observe these thoughts, then we start to understand that the thoughts we are generating are our creation. So then the question that arises is ‘What is the seed behind my thoughts?’ ‘What is it within the self that initiates the thought in the first place?’

The seeds that create thoughts are the desires that we hold within our hearts. The ‘wants’ and ‘needs’ we have.

When we look closely within we will find that behind much of our thinking are feelings. When we are in touch with those feelings we will discover our ‘needs’ and ‘wants’ – the ‘desires’ that are the seeds behind those thoughts.

There are the physical needs for sure but even more powerful are the subtle needs of love, respect, power, authority, popularity, belonging and so forth. These then become the foundation from which thoughts are born and actions created. To varying degrees we all experience, at some time, fear, worry, anxiety. All these are born through desire!

What type of desires should I have to ensure the thoughts and feelings that emerge are positive and benevolent?

Law of Attraction

Thought power is one of the most beneficial creative powers we possess.

Like seeds, if we feed and nourish them with the right attention, they will have a natural tendency to grow and manifest positivity in our life. Our behaviour and attitude, actions and reactions are shaped by the thoughts we cultivate.

Moreover, our thoughts generate energy in the form of subtle vibrations. These vibrations become like a magnetic field reaching out to and attracting similar thought vibrations.

By consciously choosing the right quality of thoughts, accompanied by powerful visualisation, over time, we can train our mind to harness thoughts that will attract more and more goodness and positivity into our lives. This is the law of attraction.

As we think so we become. Our destiny is in our thoughts.

Om Shanti

Spiritual Centering

being_centred

My spiritual centre point is the inner space from where I experience my natural state of existence – a space of peace, love, joy, truth and strength.

In order to drive a car, we engage the gears and when we come to a stop, we need to disengage them and return to neutral. Similarly every time we think, speak or act, we are engaging. Sometimes we are able to move along in lower gears…..not moving too far away from our centre. However at times our ‘car’ goes into overdrive, moving way beyond its capacity – maybe even reach breaking point and we experience many stress related feelings and emotions.

A simple practice of taking a minute of each hour to return to the centre will protect me from wavering too far from my centre. Also the power I will have accumulated over time from the hourly practice of centering will allow me to navigate back to the centre quickly and effortlessly.

Take time out to dis-engage and re-charge.

 

Om Shanti
